Questions About 2012 Lincoln MKT’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lincoln? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your MKT towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my MKT's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 MKT’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Lincoln. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
